Note to Apple: This does nothing to alleviate the cult stereotype

May 6, 2010

If you’re walking along Sainte-Catherine street in downtown Montreal at night, be prepared to be freaked out by a display of Apple retail zombies employees.

They are watching you.

I don’t know what enticed this particular Apple store to put up this display of Mac Zombie cutouts, but it got creepier as I approached the store. A legion of Apple retail employees, frozen, waiting to sell you a MacBook Pro – and possibly eat your brains.

Cult of Apple gathers at window.

As someone who gets accused of “drinking the Apple Kool-Aid” sometimes, despite the fact that I never hesitate to bash bad Apple products (like the TV and virtually every mouse the company has ever made) I can see how this particular display makes Apple look a little cultish.

This time, Apple has gone too far. Or perhaps these are just real employees awaiting the Hale-Bopp comet.

    I’d say it makes Apple seem desperate for attention; they hardly need it with 1M iPads sold and May 10th just around the corner!
